A Wythe County deputy got more than he bargained for when he tried to serve a protective order this afternoon. The deputy saw 51 year old William Randolph Monday mowing his lawn around noon. When he approached the house, sheriff's officials say Monday grabbed two pistols and then ran in the house and came out with a shotgun. Investigators say Monday pointed the gun at the deputy and threatened to kill him. After an hour standoff, Monday was taken into custody, served the protective order and then charged with felonious assault of a police officer.
